Heather Schulze to Join CHFH as Executive Director

Coastal Habitat for Humanity
Thursday, September 7, 2017

Dear Friend,

As a valued supporter, I wanted you to be the first to know that after an extensive search, the board of directors has identified an exemplary community leader to fill the executive director position from which Maureen Mulligan is retiring.

It is with great excitement I share with you Heather Schulze, a longtime local resident, will assume the role of Coastal Habitat's Executive Director effective September 15.

Most recently, Heather served as Community Youth Outreach Coordinator for Interfaith Neighbors (one of our great partner organizations) as well as the Director of Asbury Park's Kula Cafe Training Program.  Heather's experience with community engagement, affordable housing programs, federal grant writing, and family counseling is extensive - all of which will prove to be invaluable in her new role with our charity.  She has also served as staff attorney for two legal service organizations.

During our search, we were contacted by many talented professionals from as far away as Utah and Oregon, which speaks to both Coastal Habitat's nationally-recognized results and the drive Americans have to help one another.

"I grew to admire Coastal Habitat after seeing first-hand it's involvement in the community and impact on the lives of local residents post-Superstorm Sandy," said Schulze.  "I am thrilled to be joining the dedicated board of directors, staff and volunteers in serving their ​
unwavering passion for the provision of safe, affordable housing and communities."

I look forward to you meeting Heather very soon.  I am sure you will agree she is a leader with the depth and breadth of experience to foster the future of Coastal Habitat's sustainable impact in Southern Monmouth County.  Please join us in welcoming Heather to our organization.

Randy Bishop
Board of Trustees
